Alvarez denies link
to killing of judge


Negros Occidental Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr. yesterday denied insinuations linking his family to the assassination of Kabankalan Regional Trial Court Judge Henry Arles.

Arles, 62, was shot dead by assassins in Brgy. Manalad, Ilog, on April 24, and an influential clan is alleged to be behind it.

Alvarez said his family has no reason to be mad at Arles or to have him assassinated. “We have nothing to gain from such an act,” he said.

They have no case before Arles’ court and he doubts he even knows the judge, Alvarez said.

Perhaps someone with political motives is behind the rumors linking his family to Arles killing, he added.

Those making insinuations should find evidence and file charges against the people they think are behind the killing, Alvarez said.

The police and National Bureau of Investigation have yet to name their suspects in the killing of Arles.*CPG
